Military Interview Questions for Veterans to Know
Questions begin the moment an interview does, and your potential employer will ask you a number of these. You will be asked about your experience, long- and short-term goals and why you are qualified for the position. These are some standard questions you can expect to be asked in the interview.
But, there are some questions that might be asked when potential employers discover past military experience on your resume or cover letter. The interviewers could ask these questions to understand the skills and experience you gained throughout your military career. This is your opportunity to highlight your skills and experience to land you that job.
Here are some questions that could be asked to you in an interview:

How would you describe your past active-duty position in civilian terms?
What were some of your key roles or responsibilities in the military?
What were some chief activities you completed?
